27. A graph or

 

chart is usually very helpful for most people. That old 'a picture is worth a thousand words....'

I'll see if I can find one.

But if I had my way, we'd return to the tax rates under Ike. I like Ike and and his tax rates....they hit 90% on some of the highest income.

Ike thought if you made millions....that last million was more than any human was worth and so Ike said, 'You gotta share that last bit of income, dude.' Those were the days.

Hell Raygun rates of the early '80's would be OK. The rich, especially the inherited rich, have to realize that they are simply NOT WORTHY! It worked back in the days when there was such a thing called, GUILT, in this culture. Today, there is no guilt nor SHAME. And the rich believe they are above the law....which goes along with their belief that their shit don't stink.

Most rich people are truly obnoxious and deep down inside many of them know they are not worthy, intelligent, nor creative....so they compensate by pushing their power around to feel like BMOC.

Look at the Walton family. Papa Walton who did all the hard work of starting Walmart drove around in a beat up old pick-up truck and treated his associates with respect....and he shared his wealth with the associates via stock. His kids are ruthlessly cruel and greedy. They have more money than the US's bottom third (as far as income)....and that's 100,000,000 people. This is not morally right. Yet they call them Christians....I'm sure Jesus is like
